Al was born in Lewiston, Maine and attended schools in Lisbon Falls where his mother was a teacher for 42 years. He received a degree in Business and Finance from Bentley College. In 1970, Al joined the Titleist Company, which brought he and his family to Marion, where he established cherished friendships and had deep ties to the community.

He served on the Marion Finance Committee and was a former Mason.
In 2002, he and his wife retired to St. Simons Island, GA. They returned to Marion in 2011 to be closer to family and friends, where Al enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren sharing his love of baseball and golf.
